Embellishing With Enamel Dots

Hello there! I have recently been loving these enamel dots as embellishments on my cards. They are so quick and easy to add and they give the card some fun texture and dimension.

Today's video will show how to use the enamel dots in creative and fun ways on your cards and craft projects. I will be making two Christmas tags using the awesome Snow Buddies stamp set.

I was inspired and challenged to use these enamel dots in many different and unique ways. They add so much to your cards!

To start out, I stamped the two groups of penguins and snowmen onto the tags using the MISTI to get a complete image. I then colored them both in using Copic Sketch Markers with very simple blending. 

Then, I stamped a fun background using two blue inks and snowflakes. I love to create my own backgrounds with those extra small stamps that come in the stamp set. But, you could also mask off the penguins and stamp a snowy background stamp onto the tag.

Next, I stamped the sentiment "Merry Christmas" using the MISTI to align them onto both tags below the penguins and snowmen. 

Then, I added the enamel shapes onto the beaks of the critters. You are able to color the enamel shapes with Copic markers to make them darker if needed. I also added the to the background and onto some of the snowmen accessories. 

Finally, I finished of the tags with an assortment of different twines and tied them through the holes at the top. 

Enjoy the video!


  1. The dots do add interest to the card - not that they needed any more help.
    thanks for sharing.

  2. I have some of those dots and I love them! I also have sequins and when you see the cards I have created with all of them, you will be amazed! LOL I love your tags, they are so adorable! I just want to take those snowmen and penguins and just give them a hug! Congrats on the new designer! I like her cards a lot and will go visit her blog when I get a chance. I had computer problems for about 3 days and I couldn't get on so I am trying to catch up on e-mail's.

  3. When I saw your cards I had to take out my snowman and penguin christmas cards again and put some enamel dots on the cute little critters. So awsome! Thanks for this great idea!

  4. Sweet all those wonderful enamel dots!
